A topological group G is defined to have property (OB) if any G-action by isometries on a metric space, which is separately continuous, has bounded orbits. We study this topological analogue of strong uncountable cofinality in the context of Polish groups, where we show it to have several interesting reformulations and consequences. We subsequently apply the results obtained in order to verify property (OB) for a number of groups of isometries and homeomorphism groups of compact metric spaces… CONTINUE READING
